Chicken Fried Jackfruit #vegan #appetizers

Who realized people preferred singed tofu to such an extent?! I'll be straightforward, that is one thing that I miss in the wake of going vegetarian… a great ol' bit of singed chicken. Unmistakably things have changed since the times of eating chicken, so I realized I needed to locate an option, which is the reason I needed to try the seared tofu. While I enjoyed it, my yearnings for singed chicken remained. I realized I expected to discover something that all the more intently looked like the surface of chicken. Welp, Jackfruit appeared to possess all the necessary qualities!

I took a stab at searing the jackfruit as is with the hard parts seeds still in class and that didn't work out so well, so I needed to include some cutting as a stage. The "buttermilk" is a stunt I learned while investigating veggie lover hotcakes and appeared to work beautiful will here as well. The breading is a tasty blend of some essential flavors that you most likely as of now have in your zest bureau. So proceed! Try it out and let me comprehend what you think!

Chicken Fried Jackfruit #vegan #appetizers

In the event that you've never attempted jackfruit, this is the ideal presentation! It's all around prepared and flawlessly fresh! An incredible substitute for chicken!


  • 1 20 oz. can jackfruit in brine
  • enough oil for frying (ex: vegetable) doesn't have to cover the whole chunk of jackfruit, but at least half


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 4-5 shakes of cayenne pepper to taste
  • 4-5 shakes of oregano to taste
  • red pepper flakes optional


  • 1 cup almond milk or other non dairy milk
  • 1 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar


  1. In a small bowl mix together the ingredients for the buttermilk and set aside.
  2. In another bowl of medium size, begin mixing together the breading ingredients and set aside.
  3. Add enough oil to a frying pan and turn on to medium low heat.
  4. Drain and rinse your jackfruit. Then on a cutting board, begin cutting parts of the jackfruit that are hard or contain seeds (see photo of scraps I discarded). You want to try and leave only the parts that are stringy or soft. This will help to provide a similar texture to chicken. I experimented with leaving the pieces as is and did not care for the texture.
  5. Once the other parts have been cut away, you should be left with pieces that you want to fry. Begin by dipping the jackfruit piece in the buttermilk mixture, then in the breading, BACK in the buttermilk, then in the breading again.
  6. Once completed, add it to the hot frying pan. Note: you can add them one at a time, or wait until you've completed a handful of pieces to fry together.
  7. If the oil in the pan does not fully cover the jackfruit pieces, keep an eye on them so that they can be rotated after 2-3 minutes. You will know if they're ready when you touch them with your tongs and the outter breading has hardened and is crispy.
  8. Repeat until all jackfruit is fried.
  9. Once the jackfruit is fried, transfer to a plate with 3-4 layers of paper towels so that some of the oil can be absorbed. Allow them to cool for ~4 minutes before serving.
  10. Pair with your favorite dipping sauce (or not) and enjoy!
